    VERY nice and compared to some I have seen on here. Guess you guys came from the strip with all that shoe polish. Any real time drag strip numbers if you guys went to the strip?

    Did I read that correctly that the Corvette had 661 whp with some bolt ons? The Corvette still got thrashed and it wasn't Nineball driving.

    From Motor Authority: "The 2015 Z06's curb weight is 3,524 lbs and the convertible version a full 3,582 lbs. Compared to the previous generation Z06 that's quite a significant increase, up from 3,175 lbs. That's 349 lbs in one generation. It's even quite a jump over the last Corvette's ultimate performance model, the ZR1—a car which weighed in at 3,333 lbs."

    Curb weight of Viper TA: 3332 lbs.

    192 lbs is quite a bit of weight and may be a significant reason for the result.

    I love it. :headbang:


    I am old school by the current car standards, I guess.
    Have a gen III Viper, and a 2009 Z06. Both cars are killer and close in performance, but the Viper is just a little more brutal.

    It looks like the performance gap between the two is the same with the new versions.
    Z06 is totally awesome, but Vipers are just a little more full-blast. :D

    I love it.;)

    Great runs. Thanks for sharing. I am so POed I missed you as I was dying to ask you to drive your Viper on the street to see how the clutch was.
    I did talk to the vette owner. Nice guy and he only had positive stuff to say about you and your snake.
